I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior who gave his life so that I may have eternal life. One of my favorite bible verses from the 10th chapter of Luke states that we should, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and Love your neighbor as yourself." This is how I strive to live out my daily life and pray that children will notice and acknowledge these actions and develop a desire to live and act this way as well!
I grew up and have lived in Jenison my whole life. I graduated from both Jenison High School (where I met my husband of 12 years) and Grand Rapids Community College with a degree in child development. I spent many years working in different areas including being a before/after school assistant, a lead childcare teacher, assistant childcare director, and most recently as a 4 year old preschool teacher for the past 4 years. I was blessed to take time off in between each job after each of our children came home. Mackenzie is 9, Ezra is 5, and Liam is 15 months. I love having a job where I can balance wife/mom life with teaching!
